What drop bat should a 12 year old use?
Considering BBCOR bats are right around the corner we’d suggest most 12 year olds look for a drop 8 bat as the right drop. In terms of length most drop 8 bats go as low as a 30 through a 32. We think the ideal bat for the average 12 year old is a 31-inch drop 8 bat (which would make it 23-ounces).
Why do softball players have 2 bats?
Softball players use two bats to warm up, and though it may look a bit odd, it serves an instrumental purpose. These two bats will effectively add weight to a player’s practice swing. The weight of the second bat will cause the player to exert more effort when swinging during the actual game.
Is it OK to hit baseballs with a softball bat?
Using a softball bat to play baseball would most likely result in cracking or breaking your bat. Softball bats are not designed to withstand the forces resulting from an impact with a baseball. The same would be true of using a fast-pitch softball bat in a slow-pitch game; you would probably damage your fast-pitch bat.
Do college softball players pay for their bats?

Is a drop 8 or drop 10 better?
If the added weight decreases the swing speed, then it’s possible a drop 10 would do better. If swing speed stays the same, a drop 8 will do better.
